Sarah Smith Hymes

Town Council & Mayor
Title: Mayor

Sarah Smith Hymes was first introduced to Eagle County as a child by her uncle, whose love of skiing and the west led him to join the original group of 17 to invest in the vision of a ski area in Vail. She majored in Chinese and Russian at Georgetown University and later earned a Masters from Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs. Before settling in Avon to raise a family, she spent many years traveling to China selling American packaging and water processing machinery. Sarah will work to strike a balance between protecting Avon’s natural and historic assets and driving economic development.
